Just about all of us drive to and from work. However, some of us drive for work. These men and women spend day in and day out in the cab of their vehicle. These can be patrol officers, delivery personnel, or truck drivers, among other professions. For most truck drivers, the road is their home. They eat, sleep, and work in the cab of their big rigs. They see all parts of this country and all the good and bad that comes with it. The bad we are talking about here is the pollen, dust, germs, spores, fungus, mold, mildew, and everything else in the air that truck drivers have to endure day in and day out. If you are a truck driver out there, spending so much time in the cab of your truck, why not make it a little more hospitable?
The cab of semi trucks is where the driver eats, sleeps, and works. It should be getting the cleanest air possible.
Thanks to K&N, you can do just that. As a part of K&N’s line of washable and reusable cabin air filters, they have introduced the K&N VF8000. This cabin air filter replaces the stock cabin air filter in most 2002 and newer Freightliner trucks, including Century Class, Columbia and Coronado, and Cascadia models. K&N cabin air filters are the first of their kind designed to replace the stock cabin filter for a washable and reusable version. These filters clean and freshen the incoming air, removing potentially harmful pollutants before the air enters the cab of your truck.
Thanks to the washable and reusable properties of these filters, when the filter gets dirty, instead of throwing it away and spending money on another paper air filter, all you have to do is remove the filter and clean it with K&N’s 99-6000 cabin air filter cleaner. Once the filter has been rinsed clean, just respray it with the K&N refresher spray that comes in the kit. This spray helps add an electrostatic property to the filter. This actually grabs and holds onto contaminants, holding them in place until it is time to clean the filter again.
K&N is so sure of the quality of their cabin air filters that they guarantee them with a 10-Year/100,000 Mile Limited Warranty. They are able to last this long because of the quality of materials used. To start, the innovative synthetic filter media is sandwiched between a pair of epoxy coated aluminum mesh layers. This gives the filter rigidity and durability. This is then pleated for added surface area and molded into a urethane frame for an OE level of fitment.
If you put a lot of miles on your truck and haven’t checked your cabin air filter in a while, you may want to take a look at the K&N line of cabin air filters. A saturated cabin air filter can also put unnecessary strain on your blower motor, so switching to a cleanable filter could also help prevent costly repair bills and down time. To find out if K&N makes a replacement filter for your truck, you can use the K&N cross reference search and search for your filter manufacturer. And if you aren’t a truck driver, driving a Freightliner for a living, K&N makes washable cabin air filters for cars, trucks, and SUVs too.
